Ever just hop off the Q train at Seventh Avenue? It’s so charming over there! That’s, duh, because you’re in Prospect Heights, whose biggest claim to fame is its abundance of cultural mega-institutions: the Brooklyn Museum and the Central Library are here, and arguably the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, too. (Though some of us would put it in Crown Heights.) And that’s not all! There are also the bars and restaurants rapidly taking over Washington Avenue, like the Bearded Lady and the Way Station (which is a nerd Mecca with its Tardis toilet), not to mention the access to Prospect Park and its tiny cousin Mount Prospect Park. We also admire the nice townhouses that have survived on certain streets.
